Finally 4th, and first player of the Hexagon, Julien sitbon leaves with a 5-figure gain, just like the French record holder for paid places, Dominique terzian. The last six survivors of the tournament hosted by Texapoker turned their buy-in into at least € 10,000, good news for Anthony Gros!

Chipleader at the start of Day 3, Pietro Croce bubbled up the final (10th). Maxime Adam stopped him in 20th position while Yann Brosolo only lasted 5 minutes … time to scratch a few more euros and the € 3,050 for 23rd place …

Erik Tedeschi (50th), Yves Sergeant (48th), Omar Lakhdari (47th) then surrendered and it was Grégory Janin who was the last of the day (25th) … at the gates of the great explanation.
